The still state of Breath is the form of God; in other words, the poised state of Breath is the abode of Peace, eternal Tranquility, Sthirattva, the equilibrium state of Consciousness, Liberation, or absolute Freedom, the ultimate Self.

"Be still, and know that I am God."  Psalms 46:10

"I am the way, the truth, and the Life."  John 14:6

This inner Consciousness is the way, or the inner Door, through which one can attain the pure Consciousness, the Truth, or the eternal Life, which is blessed by all the fullness of eternal Bliss, Ananda.             

From Swami Satyeswarananda Giri, In the Light of Kriya

"I've known John for over 12 years and watched him grow into a strong and dedicated yoga practitioner and a passionate teacher over that time. He is a second generation yogi, having learned the ashtanga practice from his father, Dave Oliver, an old friend of mine. John has a strong background and thorough knowledge of the vinyasa system and has an infectious enthusiasm for practice and teaching. He is one of the rising stars in the yoga world today."
